A beautiful smile is something most people want. We want to look picture perfect for all those special moments in life. Dr. Carl Tegtmeier, your Mount Kisco, NY, cosmetic dentist, can help.

Cosmetic Dentistry:

Cosmetic dentistry isn't just about aesthetic appeal. Some cosmetic procedures are reconstructive. Here are a few procedures you may want to consider to improve your smile:

  • Dental Implants: Are you suffering from tooth loss? Dental implants are titanium posts that replace tooth roots. Your doctor places an abutment and a crown matching the rest of your teeth. This procedure both aesthetic and restorative. It strengthens your teeth and improves your smile.
  • Veneers: These procedures resurface an individual's teeth. Veneers cover teeth that are stained or discolored due to poor hygiene, drinking coffee or tea, smoking, chewing tobacco, or certain antibiotics containing tetracycline. Veneers can also fix crooked, chipped, or irregularly shaped teeth.
  • Dental Bonding: This procedure uses composite resin to cover the surfaces of your teeth for a whiter smile. The advantage of dental bonding is it can be done in one sitting in a few minutes.
  • Teeth Whitening: Do you have yellow and/or stained teeth? Part of the reason our teeth become discolored is aging. Some other reasons include smoking, chewing tobacco, drinking coffee and/or tea, and eating certain foods like blueberries. Your Mount Kisco doctor provides in-office or over-the-counter kits, whichever is more convenient for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry Care:

To take proper care of your new cosmetic dental procedure(s), make sure you brush your teeth twice a day and floss once before bed, at the very least. Use fluoride-containing products and avoid sugar-containing food.
